223 rockers

Post #1 by 62bigwindow » Sun May 20, 2018 10:49 am

I want to put a Offy valve cover on my 223 in my '61. Is it possible to change the rockers to the 52-59 style with the studs that mount the valve cover? Is the cover wide enough to seal over the bolt holes that are used to mount the valve cover on the "newer" 223's?

I haven't tried to do that swap though my best guess is that yes you could use the early style rockers and valve cover. Good luck :thumbup: :nod:

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.

Great. Its too bad there isn't another option. I think I'm going to have a side cover made out of a chunk of aluminum also. Now to find the Fenton manifold...
